Why I’m Not Boycotting Blizzard

As you may have heard, there was a controversy involving Hearthstone (made by Blizzard Entertainment, which is part of Activision/Blizzard), and a Hearthstone player who publicly stated a viewpoint that has been described as political. This led to many fans of Blizzard’s games to call for a boycott of the company. (You may have seen #BoycottBlizzard trending on Twitter).

I am not among those who are boycotting Blizzard. Yes, I realize that there will be people who choose to become angry with me because I am not doing what they have decided to do. I’m sharing my reasons anyway, in part because I doubt I’m the only person in the world who chooses not to join in this boycott.

Flight Rising: Holiday Bears

There are many holidays in Flight Rising where players can purchase special Familiars by gathering up enough in-game currency.

The Holiday Bears Familiar Set was released in June of 2014, through May of 2015. Each one corresponds to a specific Elemental Flight. If you don’t have them, your best chance of collecting them is through the Auction House.

Flight Rising: Goblin Familiars

Flight Rising is a game where players control a Lair full of dragons. Each dragon can be given a Familiar. It is sort of like a pet for the dragon. Players click on the Familiar every day for Treasure.

I have obtained the entire collection of the Goblin Familiars. All of them were part of the in-game holidays between June of 2016 and February of 2017. It is still possible to buy the Goblins from the Auction House.

Pile of Leaves costs 400 silver fish in the Neko Atsume store. The flavor text of this item says: Fall leaves sewn together to create a soft, warm pile. Now your cats can enjoy the fall all year round.

The Ironhide Dragons Collection is one of many collections of dragons that players can work on completing. The reward for completing this one is 6 tokens. I have absolutely no idea what these are used for.

Dragon Mania Legends is a game where players try and collect as many different types of dragons as possible. Dragons can fight other dragons, be bred to make new dragons, or hunt for Treasure.

Sims 4 – Mistakes Were Made

I picked up Sims 4 when Origin was offering it for free. To my surprise, it actually ran on a Mac! The only Sims game I’ve ever played previous to this one was Sim City. Obviously, there was going to be a learning curve as I figured out how to play Sims 4.

After messing around with the tutorial a little bit, I decided to just jump in and figure things out as I went along. This turned out to be a bad idea, especially since I started playing Sims 4 while having a really bad physical health day. Mistakes were made.

The reward for completing the Metallic Dragons Collection is 5 Gems. This is a useful reward because Gems are an in-game currency that can be used to purchase items that are cannot be purchased with Gold.
